Call for Papers for nº23, "Crisis, Security, Politics", of Relaciones Internacionales Journal
to be published in June 2013.


In recent history, and especially since September 11 2001, new Security Studies perspectives have achieved significant academic success. Despite "security" having continually been present in academic research, throughout the 1990s and the beginning of the 21st century, security has become increasingly visible on the political agenda and in academic debates. We have witnessed theoretical developments, diverging from the dominant American perspectives on national security, in other parts of the world including Europe.

Translation, Transection, and Transformation, ACLA in Toronto Apr. 4-7, 2013 (abstracts Nov. 15th)

Sunday, October 21, 2012 - 5:46pm
American Comparative Literature Association

Call for papers exploring broad issues in multi-disciplinary aspects of translation.

The metaphors for translation are varied and contradictory. Depending on the thinker, we might interpret translation as a range of acts; to translate is to travel, to build a bridge between cultures, to enslave oneself to an original text, to love, to serve, to betray, even perhaps to lie. Without a doubt, translation is a tricky business. It can be a force of liberation and of colonization. It offers the illusion of equivalence where none can be had. It suggests consensus where there is always room for dissent.

Collaboration as Positioning -- 2013 ACLA Conference, Toronto

Sunday, October 21, 2012 - 6:45am
American Comparative Literature Association

"Collaboration as Positioning"

Abstract Deadline: 15 November, 2012
Conference Date: April 4-7, 2013

Requiring the production and negotiation of one's position in relation to others, collaboration can be understood as a process both of mapping a whole and of locating oneself within it. Collaborations arise from the hope that multiple perspectives can generate new positions on problems, both artistic and political. This seminar welcomes papers on historical and contemporary methodologies of creative collaboration, considered as a strategy of positioning. How does collaboration affect our understanding of the relationship between community and singularity, between the private and the public?
